Lawyers pledge to work with female aspirants

Written by  Emmie Banda-MEC Stringer

Political parties in the country have been urged to support women aspirants during their primary elections as well as the forthcoming tripartite elections.

Global Hope Mobilisation set to support women in 2019 tripartite elections Global Hope Mobilisation set to support women in 2019 tripartite elections

This has been disclosed by Global Hope Mobilisation Executive Director, Caleb Thole, during presentation of a 50-50 campaign project to be implemented in Mchinji.


Thole said the 50-50 campaign can be accomplished once women are fully supported by their parties and their fellow women.


He said that despite that other political parties have already conducted their primary elections they still need to support women who still show interest to contest.


He added that their organisation is working with 120 pro bono lawyers who will be working with women aspirants on free cost to make sure that justice for women is given.


Thole further said these lawyers will be helping women aspirants who feel their rights are being violated in the run up to the 2019 tripartite elections.


''There are other female aspirants who feel that something went wrong during primary elections and they feel like not continuing after losing but once they feel offended and want to continue with their plan these lawyers will be representing them so that justice should prevail,'' said Thole.


''There are a lot of issues to do with women to be tabled in Parliament but they are not tabled because of poor representation of women, so we need to have a 50-50 female representation in Parliament,'' said Thole.


He therefore urged women in the country to vote for their fellow women aspirants in the forthcoming tripartite elections.


The project will run for 9 months and Global Hope Mobilisation will be working in all constituencies where there are female aspirants.
